One of the many combatants in League of Legends is Akali, and one of her many skins is Blood Moon. Cosplayer Kasumeta Anne, also known as After Market Cosplay, made a Blood Moon Akali costume last summer. She used various materials to make the costume and props, including expanding foam, craft foam, fabric, cardboard, and paint. I particularly want to call out the mask. The base of Akali’s mask is a plastic masquerade mask you can usually find at any craft store. They’re often inexpensive, and they serve as a great base for any face mask you might need. You can cut it in half if you only want a partial mask or simply cut to make the mouth and eyes bigger like Kasumeta did.
You can add to plastic masks with air dry clay or by gluing or taping on additional parts. Kasumeta went that route and added antlers and extensions. She covered the whole thing in paper mache and painted it green and then white before drawing on the details. It looks as though the finished mask was sealed with a glossy finish.
